Tamika was Artur Hawkwing's second wife.
Tamika was approximately thirty years younger than Artur Hawkwing. They met in FY 964 and were married a year later. It was she who appeared to have a calming effect on the High King. Hostilities between Hawkwing's Empire and Tar Valon lessened somewhat after Hawkwing met her, and he once again allowed an Aes Sedai adviser in his court. Some historians believe Tamika herself could channel and perhaps was a renegade Aes Sedai, but that theory contradicts reports of her youth.
It is said that Hawkwing wrote poetry declaring his love for Tamika, the Tamika Poems, as he had for his first wife Amaline. But, if he did, every last poem was lost in the passage of time.
